Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Michael James spent more than eight years studying the original Tamil writings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana and of his foremost disciple, Sri Muruganar, in minute detail under the clear guidance of another close disciple, Sri Sadhu Om, and since the passing away of Sri Sadhu Om in 1985 he has continued to study and practise the spiritual path revealed by Sri Ramana. Together with Sri Sadhu Om, Michael has translated into English most of the original Tamil writings of Sri Ramana, and also Guru Vachaka Kovai, which is the most comprehensive and reliable collection of the sayings of Sri Ramana, recorded in 1255 Tamil verses composed by Sri Muruganar, with an additional 42 verses composed by Sri Ramana himself. Their translations of these works, which include detailed word-for-word meanings of most of the original verses composed by Sri Ramana, and their translations of many of Sri Sadhu Om's own Tamil verses, have been published in several volumes. This book contains Michael's own translations of the whole of Sri Ramana's prose treatise Nan Yar? (Who am I? ) and of most of the verses of his philosophical poems such as Upadesa Undiyar, Ulladu Narpadu, Ekatma Panchakam, Anma-Viddai and Upadesa Tanippakkal. An electronic copy of this book is available for free download on Michael's website, www.happinessofbeing.com, and many of his other writings are available on his blog, www.happinessofbeing.blogspot.com.

I would suggest the book The Path of Sri Ramana by Sri Sadhu Om.
I took 2 years to understand the simple understanding of how to get to the source.
We are so full of it. So we don't see the obvious. Ramana did and Mr. Om spells it out very clearly.
If read carefully, the mind will understand that is ok to let go of "stupid" and enjoy a moment or more of silence, thus allowing the true nature of "all life" to show its splender.
An entrepreneur is a rare state indeed. Only a few special people achieve entrepreneur-hood. From the outside, an entrepreneur looks like a business-man and this is how the rich get away with it.
The guru industry is the same. The world 'enlightenment' is used by almost all people who have published a book to describe themselves. Or the modest are merely 'awakened'.
I listen to the excellent podcast called Buddha at the Gas Pump and I have noticed a pattern. Almost all the guests claim to be there already and most of these guests say that is was a 'park'... An obvious cliché because Goethe loved nature, as did Terence McKenna, and all genius' rave on about nature, so its an obvious meme that you will use when you want to convince yourself. Personally, I enjoy grand architecture.
People claiming to have had a glimpse and are indeed enlightened because they can talk the talk are two a penny these days. But Michael James is one of those very clever people who really understands all those Sanskrit words and Tamil worlds, but he is honest and humble enough not to anoint himself semi-devine, like a mad emperor from Roman times.
This book is big and all you need to know is in these pages. James lived in India for years and he really knows a thing or two.
One worrying thing that I'm sure others have noticed. Michael James is so so articulate and nice but he admits to not getting anywhere near this stuff! What chance do you and I have?
